I loved this city!! Charleston was so charming and the food was uhhh-mazinggg!! My favorite part of the whole trip was ringing in the New Year at the Vendue’s NYE roaring 20’s Gala! It was full of Flapper Girls, Gangsters, and Ragtime music and macaroons! We dressed up and danced the night away!
If you missed it, here’s Part 1 of my trip.

A couple months ago, I started to get the travel bug. You know – that sudden need to just get in the car (or on a plane) and leave to explore, see a new place…for me, take pictures!! I had such an incredible time traveling to Colombia in February and ever since I’ve wanted to be on the road. I attended Savannah College Of Art and Design in 2009 and loved the whole feel of the historic city so when we got a free week to travel, I knew I wanted to head back south. I hadn’t ever been to Charleston before, so I decided why not?!
The whole trip was pretty last minute and planned in just a few days. We invited my cousin and her new husband to join us and thankfully they loved the idea and we were able to spend new years eve together in this beautiful city!
The funny part is, I was having such an awesome time running around, drinking too much coffee and making memories, I never got out my big camera. This post is just a collection of images from my husband’s and my cell phone, and my cousin Kelly’s pictures! Shout out to Kelly!! She has the cutest blog HERE. Check it! Continue reading
Film, sunflowers, and adventures! It’s a pretty fun day on the blog.
I have been wanting to go see these beautiful sunflowers for literally years. Every fall I see bright yellow sunflower images pop up on my friend’s Facebook pages and blogs and it has made me want to go even more. You guys, I finally got to go! YAY. [I have to give all the credit to Felipe for finding the field and driving us out there. He actually surprised me with a trip because I’ve been talking about this for so long. Husband points!!]
I knew it would be pretty up close but when I was standing in the midst of the field, I was overwhelmed by the incredible beauty. God’s creation is truly awe inspiring. There were bees EVERYWHERE and for once in my life they didn’t terrify me. They were only interested in the sunflowers anyway.
While we waded through the sunflowers, I shot some polaroids and film (I also made Felipe snap some of me!) on my Nikon f100 and had them developed and scanned by The Darkroom and here’s what came out.
